This is just a short post to say that I’ll be taking a bit of a break from writing and blogging.
The past 72 hours has been an enormous rollercoaster of emotions. I’m normally a very private person and it’s very hard to write even this small post but here goes. My 9 year old daughter started the week with what we all thought was tonsilitus. Over the past two days that diagnosis changed to something more sinister. She has undergone an emergency tonsillectomy (apologies if I spelt that wrong) which also removed a growth. Initial results indicate Lymphoma. The next week will reveal the type and what our next steps are.
(Update – Final diagnosis is Birkett Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma – we have now started chemotherapy)
It’s time for me to focus my energies on my daughter.
